A high-octane adventure series for children written in partnership with the Royal Flying Doctor Service
An isolated location and last-minute complications put this rescue in danger!

Sam, Dawson and Emma are taking a road trip with their dad along the dusty Oodnadatta Track. They stop at Farina, an old ghost town full of crumbling buildings – perfect for a game of tip. But as they run through the ruins, their dad seriously injures his leg and it’s up to the kids to find help. They manage to call the Royal Flying Doctor Service, but the situation is so bad it’s up to Dawson to administer first aid to his dad until the aeromedical retrieval team arrives.

Reviews

The stories are true to life and written in a very accessible way that will suit not-so-strong readers as well as those who are sailing competently through their literary quests. They revolve around the outstanding and unique work of the RFDS and the many patients, emergencies and emotional dramas this wonderful service supports.

Sue Warren, Just So Stories

Both books in this new series open with a sense of excitement and intrigue that will grab young readers from the very first page . . . Fantastic adventures with one of our most significant not-for-profit organisations and a reminder of the vastness and remoteness of this geographically unusual country.

Evie Marshall, Magpies Magazine
